This part of Scotland is renowned for its unusual climate, which sees Dumfries and Galloway enjoying warmer temperatures than most of Scotland and indeed other parts of the United Kingdom. As such, outdoor activities are always popular.
The region is well known for its walking and cycling trails, with coastal paths and countryside routes offering breathtaking views and opportunities for wildlife spotting and bird watching.
Fishing and golf are two of the pursuits that regularly attract tourists to Scotland, and both are here in abundance. Fishing can be enjoyed in many of the local streams and rivers as well as on Loch Ryan, while those heading to Portpatrick, about half an hour away on the far west coast, might even find a local fisherman happy to take them out to sea for an experience to remember.
There are six high quality golf courses within an hour's drive of the park, with many more available to guests happy to drive a little further.
Guests preferring to discover town community life on their caravan holidays in Scotland should make Stranraer the focal point of their stay. It is about a 10-minute drive from this caravan park, sitting on the southernmost shores of Loch Ryan.

Dumfries is rather further away, just over an hour and a half by car from this caravan park.
Adventurous tourists will find the ferry terminal a five-minute walk from the park, with ferries operating to Larne and Belfast in Northern Ireland on a daily basis.
